ANCIENT EGYPTIAN ART Egypt, clearly shows that there is no relationship whatever between the earlier and the later art. If we compare the drawing of the men and women on the Pre-dynastic vases shown in Case B, Nos. 27 and 31, with the drawing of the King and his captive on the ivory label of the 1st Dynasty in Case T, No. 8, we see how differently the human figure is treated by the artists of the two periods, and that a wide gulf separates the prehistoric from the historic art. The series of carvings in the round in ivory and in stone, discovered at Hierakonpolis and at Abydos, many of which are now in the Ashmolean Museum at Oxford, are masterpieces of the art of sculpture, and there is nothing wherewith to compare them from prehistoric sites.
